Behrami admits he was ready to leave West Ham

West Ham United midfielder Valon Behrami admits he was ready to return to Italy this week.

The Swiss star held talks with AS Roma - but the Italian club were unable to sell players to raise the funds.

Behrami, 25, said: "I am disappointed the deal failed to go through - that is for certain.

"Avram Grant gave me his permission to speak with Roma.

"But he also said he needs me, with West Ham bottom of the table.

"I'm sure I'll still get to play for them."
